Aliquippa man gets 60-month jail term for drug conviction
An Aliquippa man was sentenced by a federal judge last week to 60 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release for violating narcotics laws.
Federal prosecutors said Kevin Lamar Williams, 28, of Linmar Terrace, who went by the name Shoe-Shoe, was part of a drug ring involving 12 other people. They conspired to deliver cocaine and crack cocaine from 2003 to December 2008, when they were charged in a 35-count indictment, prosecutors said.
The case was investigated by the Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Task Force, which consists of federal, state and local investigators.
Williams was sentenced by Senior District Judge Alan N. Bloch.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
